Znowdonia 2022


Recommended Posts

So just 5 cars from all over UK?! Any Welsh locals wish to join us? Be home by 5pm if in South Wales lol

 

The following day 19th is now a bank holiday unexpectedly good opportunity for lay in. Rip. Long Live the King. 

 

More pics from the route? Need your upselling skills!

Hi everyone ☺️

 

Early heads up re the day, PLEASE NO driving silly. Priority number one is go out, enjoy and get home in one piece. I've personally arranged a drive out and a lad of his own making ending up in a brook. Thankfully driver and passenger were both ok however this was avoidable.

 

Most bad accidents are on rural roads sadly and caused by not allowing for conditions.

 

Apologies for the nanny post, lets all do our part to avoid points, fines and injuries 😉

Fingers crossed I shall be joining you Sunday.

Looking forward to a chilled cruise on those roads. We made the mistake of joining a Rampage Rally recently, over the Snake Pass, not 20 minutes in and a balloon in a focus RS went off at 80+ by all accounts missed a propane tank by mere feet, wrote off the home owners car, Garage, Wall, Trees and his own RS. Luck would have it, him and his wife walked away with minor injuries. 

Lets hope this decent weather holds out for some good photo opportunities :)

Bingo, what's the point. Pride and joy wrote off with increased insurance premiums for years to come.

 

Save it for the track 👍

Such a shame to be missing out on this but I've looked at the route and it's two hours for me to even get to the breakfast meet up point (four hours onto the day before the fun even starts). Have a great time and I really do hope to make one next year.

Back in the day I did East Birmingham in shy of 1.5 hrs from London. Nowadays with stun guns and horse vans its not worth it. Its a solid 2 hours to the starting point. The road will be clear meaning you cant even hide between the traffic with everyone doing the same speeds 😂

 

My neighbours coming so will make it less of a drag with additional 4 hours. Probably wont be staying long at the last stop. Sunday returning to London traffic will be a lot.

got back at 9:40pm. Picked up my Exhaust. Good day out. Good to see some locals join us! Thanks Davey. Good turn out! 

 

Also lost the pack on a private estate. I think Davey should have led the pack. I managed to stop twice to take some pics and got to Llanberis first 😂

 

Some preview pics before the professionals arrive!

Great day out yet again, massive thanks for arranging this. 

Apologies from both myself and the wife, she was suffering with a headache at the llanberis stop, with 2.5hr drive home to do we had to get off. God help her when the HFC's go on and the Db's go up an notch :lol:

Managed to make it home with just 45 miles of fuel left in the tank, 1+1/2 tanks used. @GranTurismoEra hope we didn't drag you off route heading home, was flashing to say goodbye, not 'follow me' 🤣

After todays period of national grief, I will return Zara from 'Racecar' to show pony with a much needed wash....

 

Again, thanks for organising @davey_83

Best one yet. The people, the cars, the drive, the places, the views! Epic day! Thanks again @davey_83 for organising.

 

Didn't get to take many pics as phone battery was low and I forgot my charging cable (shout out to the legend @HEADPHONES for lending me his cable and battery pack so I could charge my phone for the journey home - I owe you one mate!) 

 

I'll go through my dashcam footage today, see if it caught the epicness that was Znowdonia 2022. I really need to get a GoPro!

 

Can't wait to see what the professionals come up with pics/vlogs wise!

Luckily mine was Automatic with stock exhaust...Id have had a headache too if i managed to get the tails on. Sounded serious that exhaust. I saw you headed towards Chester.

 

Saved me from the Evo Triangle! Saved a good 20 minutes just sticking to the A5 

 

I topped up again and have about £45 worth left. I also went past Worcester and back to London. 

 

£120 on Fuel and 420 miles yesterday. With the current prices good going.
